Lor how badly it starts… badly it ends. Jes Rodríguez (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1993) was involved in an involuntary controversy as soon as she arrived in Coritiba.. Alef Manga, on loan at Pafos, claimed for himself the number 11 that was assigned to the former Real Madrid youth player. “That number already has a name: me,” I wrote on ‘Instagram’.
Nothing seemed to intimidate Jesus.. Not even the delicate sporting situation of ‘Glorioso’, bottom of the Brasileirao with 14 points, eight from salvation. “I am very happy to arrive in Coritiba. Together we are going to have a good second round”said the former Real Madrid, Las Palmas and Betis player.

His debut was not easy. Jes are releasedwith a defeat, 5-1, against Vasco de Gama. In his ‘defense’ it should be noted that he came out in the 58th minute, already with 3-0 on the scoreboard.
The idea was that the Spanish, who had not played for four months, since he left Sampdoria, he got in shape and, little by little, entered Thiago Kosloski’s plans to form a throne front with Islam Slimani.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The trail of Jesuswho has played for seven teams since signing for PSG in 2016, has been lost until it completely disappears in a Coritiba that has a foot and a half in Second: is 11 points away from safety with 12 left to play.
Since his arrival he has only played 78′, all as a substitute, in five different games. He has neither scored nor assisted.What’s more, in the last two meetingswhich ended with a victory against Amrica-MG (0-3) and Cruzeiro (1-0), I didn’t even come off the bench.
“I have to give space to those who are more prepared”
Although his contract ends in December, and it does not seem that he will continue in Coritiba, Thiago Kosloski ‘stood out’ for Jes a couple of weeks ago: “He arrived in a unique situation. He spent nearly 45 days negotiating his signing and throughout everything that time they do not enter with the team. Therefore, when he arrived, he had to do special preparation to adapt to the high sequence of matches that there are in the Brasileirao.”

“His performance has improved. After that preparation, he was gaining minutes, but we are fighting to avoid relegation and “As a coach I have to give space to those who are more prepared.”.
